I've never seen this in ten years of using InDesign. I've got some type. I want to color it. I select the type. In Swatches, I choose the type icon. I choose a dark blue color. Nothing happens. It doesn't change to any color, not just blue. Why is this happening? I've closed and restarted ID twice now. It's driving me nuts.
I'm using 2015.1 CC, on a Mac.
Is it working in other docs?
Good question. I just closed ID down and went to lunch. When I came back, I opened another file, not this one, and, changed the color of some type. No problem. Then, I opened my "problem file" and tried the same. And, now it works! Go figure. So I guess I'm cool. Thanks!
It's amazing how going to lunch, or similar, solves so many problems. I'm going to put a new feature request in for a new button called "Gone to Lunch"!
